We visited this simple but charming restaurant after a morning at the beach and were all ravenous. The service was quick and the food very good value for money. The Piri piri chicken lacked spice for my tastes and a half chicken must have been a very small chicken! However the service was very honest and they made it very... More

Havebeen going here 20 yrs. Used to be great value for money and great chicken etc. It still is good but because of the loads of foreigners things have changed. I love the chicken and salad. The service should come back to the old level. I would go back no question about it.

Last few days in Portugal and realised we haven't had any real good chicken. Waked over to reception, she mentioned a place which a lot of locals visit, a place where people say "best chicken in Portugal" so we had to try it. A few minutes drive from vale do lobo €10-€15 about 20 minutes from Albufeira. The car pulled... More

Excellent spicy chicken, the way it was originally cooked. Can't describe the taste when you eat it at Frangos but it melts in your mouth. Add in spare ribs, prawns and a mouth watering salads and you have a great, affordable night out in a lively and fun atmosphere. The staff are attentive and go out of their way to... More

When visiting Portugal on our family holidays, we always eat at Mr Chicken! It is one of our favourite restaurants, forget Nandos this is the real thing! The staff are always very friendly. Service is quick. When ordering you must have the chicken, it is juicy and delicious. Mr Chicken is casual, and not over priced like many other restaurants... More

I came here (or possibly somewhere very similar) 19 years ago and loved the piri-piri chicken.... and wondered why I had never heard of it. Well Nando's has changed all that! However, Sr. Frango is still the best. Not the over-fattened tasteless meat that passes as chicken in many places but real chicken (and yes, a bit scrawny!) but tasty... More
